Popcorn flower.....

A train journey is the ideal opportunity to get a bit of crochet done. So today's trip to London enabled me to create this cool popcorn stitch flower and then turn it into a square:
I followed the pattern found here:
I worked three rounds of popcorns and then made it square by working sets of 3 dc, tc or dtc between each popcorn stitch - 3 tc, 3 x 3 dc, 3 tc, 3 dtc 2 ch 3 dtc for the corner, repeat 3 more times and join. It was then finished off with a round of tc. This square would make a really cool blanket!

The view from Primrose Hill across the whole of central London was pretty cool too:


  1. Hi I am so glad to find this post! I've made 75 of these popcorn flowers but don't know how to make them into a square, which is what I wanted to do with them and make a blanket. Can you tell me how to do this. I'm new to crochet and don't completely understand what it is you are telling me to do. Do I attach my yarn to the point of the flower, and start the corner? Any help you can give me will be so very appreciated.

    1. I joined the yarn to any chain space between 2 "popcorns" and worked 3tc, in the next 3 sets of chain spaces I worked 3dc (9dc in total), I then worked 3tc in the fifth chain space. This is the first edge, to work the corner I did 3dtc, 2ch, 3dtc in the next chain space. This was repeated 3 more times for each edge and then joined to the first treble crochet.

      I hope this helps, good luck.
